Do not attempt cardiopulmonary resuscitation (DNACPR) indicator – Healthcare Improvement Scotland – July 2013

“The purpose of this document is to specify a minimum high level measure or ‘indicator’ for healthcare services in Scotland on do not attempt cardiopulmonary resuscitation (DNACPR) decision-making and communication.

Our DNACPR indicator focuses on four areas of improvement:

. all resuscitation attempts are carried out in line with the national resuscitation guidelines of the Resuscitation Council (UK) and the Scottish Government DNACPR Adult and CYPADM policies.
. all recognised expected deaths have a DNACPR/CYPADM decision documented in line with national policy
. the NHSScotland DNACPR or CYPADM form is completed correctly for every DNACPR decision, and
. all advance/anticipatory care plan templates must include a field about resuscitation status and DNACPR/CYPADM decision.”
